Slow Slow Saturday

Hello Everyone,

  I have lots of things to share today since I've missed a few days.  I will start with my Thrifty Thursday post that I missed......
 It was an awesome Thursday, I got 3 books from the Childcraft series.  Stories and Fables, Make and Do and Poems and Rhymes all for .75 each (big score).  I remember my grandma having these books when I was little and we use to go through them all the time.  I also got 3 queen size vintage sheets that I've already started cutting into to, all for .75 each (I only have a photo of one of the sheets due to dead camera batteries).  A big bag of beautiful buttons for $1. and 2 halloween buckets for my boys for .50 each.  I would have to say that I had a great Thrift store day, wouldn't you? 

I also finally made my waldorf inspired doll some clothes and a teddy bear and she finally has a name, Bella. 
And a big thanks to Tanja because she suggested I make her more than one outfit for the ultimate Christmas gift so I will be working on the other outfits in the days to come (who knows she may even have several stuffed animals to go with each outfit :))  I will have to post some photos of her soon due once again to dead batteries.

Now on to Friday, I started a new bag and I am absolutely in love with this one.  It is made from a vintage set of curtains that I found at the thrift store awhile back.  I just loved the colors on the curtains when I first saw them so I just had to have them even though I had no idea what I was going to do with them.  I'm glad I got them because I think the bag turned out great, I even used another part of the curtain to make the liner for the bag so it is beautiful inside and out.  As you can tell from the photo of the liner I didn't have any orange thread for the zipper, but I try to use what I have instead of going and buying new supplies so I think it will be fine that you can see the ivory colored thread.  I'm thinking of making a change purse or a make up bag to match out of some of the left overs I have.  I'm pretty sure that my honey would be happy to know that I plan on using all of the material and getting rid of one more piece of material from my stash... ha ha.  The possibilites are endless. 

Now I need to think up my next project any ideas...........

Happy Crafting!!!
